Storage comes in many shapes, sizes and flavours. One of the most predominant is the array. It’s a mature system that serves many data storage needs. Virtualization and the rapid increase in data services and data consumption; however, create a need for a more scalable system — one that can scale outside the array’s form factor and increase performance speeds.
Solutions were developed to turn arrays into virtual clusters or grids. While this evolution added better scalability, it came with its share of bottlenecks and scalability “ceilings.” While such software solutions may be a bridge to clustered storage, they still do not match the true performance and scalability offered by pure clustered storage systems.
For this reason, many storage industry analysts consider clustered storage the wave of the future, albeit an expensive one. Most clustered storage systems only are available in expensive high-end products – until now.Scale Computing is a leader in the emerging commodity hardware-based clustered storage (CCS) market. The most important characteristics of this truly clustered solution include:
- no single point of failure
- migrationless scalability
- zero peformance bottlenecks
- node-by-node seamless scalability
- block-level stripe and mirror
With Scale's Commodity-based Clustered Storage (CCS) TrueCluster architecture, enterprise class, truly scalable storage is now available to the masses.
